Error building 0.11 examples on Raspberry Pi - Patchbox OS (Stretch) - cannot find -lGLESv1_CM

Hi there,

I’m using the Patchbox OS which is a modified stretch distribution and whilst trying to build OpenFrameworks examples I get the error below.

I’m using the Patchbox distribution as it provides loads of assistance with audio that I wasn’t able to sort out with Buster, although on Buster I was able to compile OpenFrameworks projects. I want to stick with Patchbox if possible.

The error states “cannot find -lGLESv1_CM”

Any help and advice would be great. Thanks!!

This fixed it for me:

sudo apt-get install libegl1-mesa-dev libgles1-mesa-dev libgles2-mesa-dev
